It's a needed blessing in a hurried world to be able to say at the end of a long day,
“I did this. Here are the results''. It may only be an attempt to create something
that feels solid in a world of importance, but this kind of progress means something
to me in a day. Perhaps to you as well. – Gary Rogowski
Investigating the way things are made and how they can be improved is constantly running
through my mind. Creating art and using my hands brings me joy, it excites me. I love
the process of creating, making, designing, and evolving an idea that started from
nothing. The gradual evolution of an idea unraveling into a tangible object people
can scour at, admire, hate, love or feel indifferent about makes me want to make.
// B L O O M plays with the concept of energetic flow. I observe this flow in the natural, digital, and spiritual worlds. These worlds are merged by the hand to form a transcendental experience. Strings of silicone move through forms that are constructed by lasers flowing through liquid resin and molten glass flowing through a flame. My work blends the digital and physical, the natural and man-made, the fantasy and reality. The digital realm allows me to play with space using mathematics — a universal material. The physical realm allows me to blend and form the universal elements inside of glass. As my body labors these materials, I find myself in most fluid conversation with my energetic self. ♢
